Priest White Nights Video

PRIEST – “White Nights” (Video)

The sonic whirlwinds of PRIEST came to fruition at the release of last year’s self-titled debut album. Nine beautiful songs became a cohesive project full of large, wispy sounds and Madeline Priest’s gleaming vocals. Repeat listens become second nature, as each memorable melody slowly works it way into your brain and out your larynx.

One of my favorite songs from Priest was “White Nights.” The song enters with subtle coolness; the snappy drums, brain-frying synths, and disco-tinged guitar all build into a dark swagger. Madeline’s verses are so light and silky. The whole thing oozes mystery like a James Bond theme, a thread captured in the track’s video. Pinks, purples, and light blues encapsulate my computer screen as I am shown hundreds of angles of Madeline and the band’s instrumental backbone, David Kazyk. Many different Madelines sway back-and-forth. She appears as a modern day Nico, impossible to take your eyes off of.
